Ferrari revealed an interesting special edition car, the 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista Piloti Ferrari. Part of what makes it interesting is that it doesn't matter how much money you have, you probably can't get it. That's because this version was created to celebrate Ferrari's motorsports teams and the car that won its class in the 2017 World Endurance Championship. As such, this car is only available to people "involved in the company's motorsports programs." We're guessing it's aimed at drivers of Ferrari race cars, but we bet that managers and other members of Ferrari race teams with enough scratch could get one, too. Besides the exclusivity, Ferrari spruced up the 488 Pista Piloti Ferrari with a number of unique features. It has a special paint scheme with a center Italian flag stripe inspired by the championship winning 488. On the passenger side of the car is the WEC logo, and on the driver's side is the word "PRO" indicating the class of the winning car. On each side, the owner can choose a custom number that will also be placed on the steering wheel. In the case of the show car, it has the number 51 for the aforementioned race car. Inside, the car features black Alcantara everywhere. There are also a few Italian flag tributes. The seat backs have the Italian flag colors fading as they head to the top of the seat. The same colors are also found on the shift paddles. Red stitching also helps break up the black interior. Nothing has been changed mechanically about the Piloti Ferrari, which means it still has the 711-horsepower turbocharged V8. But we suspect that none of the customers will be complaining about it being too slow, and the exclusivity is pretty cool. Plus, we're sure plenty of these customers will at least have access to a race car if they need something more hardcore,ferrari 488 pista, ferrari, 488 pista, pista, new ferrari, track, supercar, interior, ferrari 488, walkaround, review, ferrari pista test drive, ferrari pista, first look, auto racing, s-duct, displays, carbon fibre, 488 speciale, speciale, reveal, specification, details, launch, debut, special, explanation, automobile, car and driver 10best, autoshow, car and driver, ford, north american international auto show, bmw, vehículo, turismo, deportivo, hypercar, superdeportivo, coche
Mercedes has a lot of sweet new toys to play with right now, from the new G-Wagen to the AMG GT four-door, but it hasn't forgotten about its other toys, including one of its oldest. It announced some minor updates for its SLC-Class roadster for 2019, a car that hasn't seen a complete redesign since 2012. The standard SLC300 gets some new standalone options, such as ambient lighting, blind spot monitoring, and an analog dash clock, but the SLC43 gets the good stuff. It gets a power boost. The 2019 Mercedes-AMG SLC43 now makes 385 horsepower from its twin-turbocharged V6. That's an increase of 23 horsepower over last year's model. This also helps bring it closer to the old V8-powered version. No torque changes were mentioned, so the engine likely still makes 384 pound-feet of torque or thereabouts. In addition to the healthy power boost, the SLC43 also gets standard dual-zone automatic climate control and LED headlights with adaptive high beams. Pricing for the little Mercedes roadster has not been announced. Odds are that the pricing won't change much from the $49,395 for the SLC300 and $62,345 for the SLC43. Availability hasn't been revealed either. But it's safe to say the updated models will appear on lots by the end of the year.Automotive Cars News,mercedes, amg, slc, 2019, cars, roadster, 43, car, review, interior, slk, biturbo, g63, suv, drive, sound, benz, mercedes slc, 2018, mercedes slc updated for 2018, update, mercedes-benz, test drive, v6, mercedes benz, new, convertible, automobile, premiere, gt, como, funny, scoope, truck, launch, 4x4, sport, carros, youtube, autos
Look at this year's Nissan Armada Mountain Patrol concept and last year's Titan Project Basecamp as peace offerings – six tons of wilderness-taming wampum dedicated to the kayak and bike rack set. Nissan wants to be friends with the off-road enthusiast community again. Why did the two sides break up? Neglect. Decades of dirt-ready offerings put Nissan and the trekkers closer than forked branches and marshmallows. Nearly every Nissan Hardbody commercial from the 1980s promoted the pickup as a means to adventure, not merely a tough hauler. Nissan Pathfinder commercials from the 1990s almost all featured snow, rocks, rivers, or mud for a supporting cast. As the Pathfinder bloated into middle age and retired from the hard rock life, the Xterra took over. That Xterra then slid into the Pathfinder's former commercial campaign, and the hearts of outdoor enthusiasts. Then, sometime in the lead-up to The Great Recession, Nissan drove out of the woods and didn't look back. Instead of sincere updates for the four-year-old Xterra and five-year-old Frontier around 2009, product planning but both on cinder blocks out back and left them to rot. In 2015, Nissan grabbed its shotgun and put the Xterra in the ground. The Frontier's still back there. Adventure travelers, as disgusted as if Nissan had been doing donuts through delicate flora on its way to dynamiting endangered fish, abandoned the brand. Yet it's not like Nissan forgot how to build a capable truck – in fact, Nissan never stopped. The Frontier, ancient but indestructible, gobbles punishment as readily as the legendary Hardbody. Overseas, there's nowhere the Patrol won't go. More accurately, there's nowhere the Patrol hasn't already gone in its 67 years. Nissan Amada Mountain Patrol Off-Road DriveNissan Amada Mountain Patrol Off-Road DriveNissan Amada Mountain Patrol Off-Road DriveNissan Amada Mountain Patrol Off-Road Drive Enter the Armada Mountain Patrol, introduced at the Overland Expo West. The newest hunk of bait to lure enthusiasts back to the brand comes after a year of promotion for the Titan Project Basecamp, which was unveiled at the same show last year. Since then, Nissan has run a series of Titan Adventures for the media, trying to position the pickup as a gifted multitool for backwoods exploits. Joe Cashen, Nissan's senior marketing manager for Titan and the NV series, said the automaker sees a growth opportunity in aiming the Titan at the "hunter, fisher, boater, camper crowd." This year's Armada Snow Patrol tried to hook the snow-bound set. And enticements are also in the pipeline: Nissan dealers will soon offer a three-inch lift from Icon Vehicle Design, and we got the idea there's a factory-approved lift kit on the way for the Armada. We got a little wheel time in the Armada Mountain Patrol on a lengthy backcountry route in the high country around Flagstaff and Jerome, Arizona. The convoy included a standard Armada Platinum Reserve, the Project Basecamp Titan, a brace of less extreme Titans, and two pure aftermarket offerings: the Recon Campers NV200 Evny overlander, and "Rulebreaker," a yellow Titan with a black and yellow Lance camper built by Hellwig Products. David Page runs Fluid Peak Collective, Nissan's outside agency doing lifestyle and social media for trucks. He designed the Titan Project Basecamp – "I built my dream truck," he says. He also is behind the Armada Snow Patrol and the Armada Mountain Patrol. Starting with an Armada Platinum Reserve, Page added about 1,500 pounds of kit, putting the Mountain Patrol well over 7,000 pounds. The biggest challenges compared to the Titan Project Basecamp was the Armada's lower payload capacity compared to the Titan, no eight-food pickup bed, and a lack of vertical space for a 4'x3' bed under a low roof. That meant more discrimination concerning amenities, so whereas the Titan Project Basecamp is good for about a week of self-sufficiency, the Armada Mountain Patrol can disappear for around five days.Automotive Cars News,nissan, armada, nissan armada, 2018 nissan armada, mountain patrol, nissan armada mountain patrol, nissan armada review, patrol, 2018 nissan armada platinum, 2017 nissan armada, nissan murano, mountain, 2018, armada mountain patrol, 2018 armada, 2018 nissan, automotive news, overland, nissan armada 2018, y62, ????? ?????? ??????? ???????, ??armada???, armada snow review, first drive, offroad test, offroad test drive, snow drift, nissan snow armada latest, nissan upcoming armada, nissan latest armada, and more, photos, pricing, reviews, full news, price, specs, build, full interior exterior, nissan snow patrol
The elusive 2020 Cadillac CT5 luxury sports sedan has once again been spotted by a spy photographer. This time, we get to see it from all angles, whereas last time we only saw it from the front. It still has quite a bit of fake body work, and it's very clear Cadillac still hopes you'll think this is a Charger, from the big hood scoop to the fake full-width taillights. Digging past those misdirects, we can find some new details about the car. First, the car's front lighting has developed further. There are production-ready headlights fitted that appear to have some sort of LED illumination. These production lights also fit the shape we saw on the last prototype, so they'll end high up on the body, extending slightly horizontally toward the grille. There's still a section that extends back along the fender, seeming to bridge the gap between current Cadillacs and the Escala concept from which this car takes inspiration. Another addition are the vertical LED accent lights. This is another trademark feature of both current Cadillacs and the Escala, but they were absent from the last prototype we saw. We also get a look at some of the grille's details. Instead of slats, this CT5 has a plastic mesh of small rectangles. The pattern is reminiscent of brickwork. These photos also give us our first look at the back of the CT5. It looks like a fairly typical Cadillac. It's much more conservative than the front end. There are some angular cutouts in the bumper to allow exhaust gases out. The taillights have the current Cadillac look with the top curving over the rear fender. We can't tell if there will be a horizontal element like on the Escala, due to the fake lights. We're expecting the CT5 to be shown sometime next year in time for the 2020 model year. Odds are it will use off-the-shelf Cadillac engines including the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V6, and the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6. Now that Cadillac has revealed its twin-turbo 4.2-liter V8, we'll be interested to see if that shows up in a future CT5-V.Automotive Cars News,cadillac ct5, cadillac, 2020 cadillac ct5, cadillac ct5 coupe, 2020 cadillac, cadillac ct5 review, cadillac ct5 2020, cadillac xt5, cadillac ct5 2017, 2019 cadillac ct5, cadillac ct5 commercial, carengine, 2019 cadillac, cadillac ct5 2018, 2020 cadillac escala suv, cadillac ct5 2016, 2020 cadillac escalade, car news, 2020 cadillac escala, cadillac escala, cadillac ct5 2019, cadillac ct5 spy shots, spy shots, auto car magz, 2020, 2020 escala, 2020 cadillac xt5 spied, top auto news, cadillac ct5 release date, spy, xt5, acrmagz, exterior, autocarmagz, suv, review, cadillac ct5 price, new, 2019 cadillac ct6, cadillac escalade esv
The 2019 Hyundai Veloster is a revitalized version of a type of car many mainstream automakers are slowly giving up on entirely: the affordable sports car. Rivals like the Honda Civic Si and Volkswagen GTI spring to mind, but, generally speaking, car companies crank out more and more SUVs and crossovers while this once thriving segment dwindles in numbers. That's too bad, because it takes only a few minutes behind the wheel to realize the crossover and SUV crowd are missing out on a lot of driving fun.
Styling is subjective, though we'd say Hyundai's design team did an excellent job transferring the Veloster's unique three-door design into a revitalized new shape. The 2019 Veloster is 0.8-inches longer and 0.4-inches wider than before, though the most noticeable changes include the large cascading front grille, along with a cleaner and more aggressive look at the rear. The new version looks like a cross between a sport coupe and, say, a high-end sneaker. It stands out, and that's a good thing in a world ruled by crossovers.
Once again, the two doors on the passenger side add a degree of practicality compared to a traditional coupe, eliminating the need to climb over a folded front seat to gain access to the rear seats. The hidden door handle helps the third door blend neatly into the bodywork. Hyundai says rear headroom has increased by 0.6 inches, though it gets snug back there for anyone close to 6 feet in height. Skip the optional sunroof, since it takes up a few precious millimeters that could be better used for the craniums of rear occupants. Cargo space measures in at 19.9 cubic feet with the folding 60/40-split rear seatback in place.
Like the exterior, the cabin gets a thorough redo for the 2019 model year. The overall control layout is logical and getting accustomed to the touchscreen infotainment is quick and painless. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are standard, a major plus point for tech-savvy car buyers in this segment. Some cabin plastics are hard and look cheap, especially the panels on the upper half of the doors, exactly where you'd rest an arm with the windows down during a sunny summer drive.
But it's the dynamic bits that make the biggest contribution. Rather than removing sport-tuned (i.e. more expensive parts) from the car to keep the price low, the Veloster receives mechanical upgrades that help sharpen the handling and provide a more connected feel to the road.
These modifications include a new multi-link rear suspension fitted to the entire model range. This replaces a more mundane torsion-beam setup used in the first-generation model. Key suspension elements are also crafted out of aluminum to trim weight and sharpen driving dynamics. Aluminum knuckles in the front suspension alone shed 5.3 pounds at each corner, according to Hyundai's calculations. A similarly targeted use of aluminum in the rear suspension – which is shared with the Elantra GT – helps trim an additional 4.2 pounds from each corner. With suspension components, every ounce makes a difference in terms of handling dynamics.Automotive Cars News,MW, car, truck, suv, cuv, crossover, auto, automobile, vehicle, motor trend, review, drive, first drive, video, hyundai, veloster, turbo, dct, dual clutch, manual, b&m racing, short throw shifter, performance, r-spec, hatchback, texas, austin, michelin, tires, hot hatch, veloster turbo,
